City of the Living Dead
Directed by Lucio Fulci
A reporter and a psychic try to close the gates of hell before zombies invade Earth in the first of Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy. After a priest guarding the gates dies, Mary and Peter learn that his death created the opportunity for the dead to rise in only a few days. Soon enough, gruesome things start happening - including the film's most famous sequence where a female victim literally pukes her guts out. If George Romero's living dead films are too tame for you, Fulci's films should satisfy all your creepy cravings. Contains violence and gore.

Pretty good. Probably Fulci's best for me. Good deaths and decent characters this time around.
The bloody tears are by far the coolest sfx ive seen in a long time, but the last 10 seconds of the movie are confusing.
I enjoyed it, I don't see myself watching it for a second time though. Also I am curious why she reacted the way that she did at the end screaming bloody murder when the kid (John John) was running towards them after they climbed out of the tomb.
Great classic horror/splatter film. The special effects makeup was captivating and the storyline was excellent. Will definitely be watching this movie again.
I've always loved this movie. i just can't help it.
